Heart Safe Fairy Meadow

Starting on Monday 15 April club members will be visiting businesses in Fairy Meadow explaining our current project in Fairy Meadow which is the installation of two publically accessible Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) in the Fairy Meadow area so that most businesses and retail outlets will be within a short distance of an AED should the need arise.

One will be conveniently placed in the Ambience Building just outside the entrance to Coles. The other will be at the Fairy Meadow Community Centre on the corner of Cambridge Avenue.

The Rotary Club of Fairy Meadow, in conjunction with Wollongong First Aid, will be offering free non-accredited training by an accredited trainer in the use of one of these devices to those who work in offices and shops between Cabbage Tree Lane and Balgownie Road plus those in Daisy Street and Elliott’s Road. In addition to this initial training the club will be providing ongoing refresher course training on an annual basis.

If members of your business would like to take part in this free non-accredited training (about one hour duration) please register on-line here. You will then be contacted and offered a couple of dates and times for training at a place near to your place of work in Fairy Meadow.

Razzamatazz 2019 back at the Woonona-Bulli RSL

Members of The Fairy Meadow Rotary Club would like to announce the names of the organisations who will be supported in 2019 with the proceeds from our next Razzamatazz shows to be held back at our normal venue The Woonona-Bulli RSL. The show date is Tuesday 16 April 2019 which is during school holidays. There will be three shows; confirmed at 10:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Sponsorship by local businesses provides tickets for the children to see the shows and the Festival also raises invaluable funds for local and national causes. 
Hundreds of local children will be thrilled by the antics of the performers at one of the three Razzamatazz shows put on by International Entertainers.

This fantastic, international variety show delights the children with magic, clowning, juggling, balancing, puppetry, acrobatics and exceptional comedy routines. 

Many of the audience have to deal with illness, physical disability, emotional trauma and/or severe financial difficulties on a daily basis so an outing like this really lifts their spirits and brings them well needed joy and laughter.

If your community group is not on our mailing list to receive tickets to one of the shows please apply to the secretary by clicking here 

Proceeds this year will also benefit:

Ongoing drought support in New South Wales for farmers and farming communities.
